Teeside Nature Reserve~July 2017~part 2

part 1 HERE

The nature reserve has, as you’d expect, a fair amount of wild flowers.

The reserve is home to 4 different types of marsh orchids, but I only spotted 3

the burnet moths were quite fond of them

always there are dandelions

and buttercups

and pink grassy stuff

and finally some poppies

the nature reserve is right on the coast, so next time we’ll have a look round there.

Stay tooned!
